    Separable DE



    Substitution definitely did not work for me.. Heres where I got.



    I have all my x's and y's on one side, but since I have a minus "x" I cant distribute my dx and integrate!

    Where do I go from here?

    Thank you

    You need to write the DE as dy/dx - 1/(x+1) y = x/(x+1) and use the integrating factor method.
